CapacitorsCapacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.
Capacitor - MusiCap, 100V, Film & Foil Polypropylene
Critical loudspeaker crossovers deserve to have a transparent product specific to the application. Speaker MusiCaps, with their thicker leads, are a revelation in well-designed crossover networks. While a fully MusiCap-ed crossover is supreme, just installing MusiCaps in the tweeter circuit will reveal much additional detail and nuance. Many prominent high-end loudspeaker manufacturers have been using MusiCaps in their top models for years.
Starting at $21.65
Capacitor - 1500V, .1µF, Oil
Non-inductive polyester and oil caps, these film capacitors use oil-soaked polyester as di-electric material and are smooth and natural in sound.
Capacitor - Peavey, 55V, 4700µF, Axial Lead
Peavey 4700 µF @ 55V polarized electrolytic capacitor with axial leads. 7/8" diameter x 2" length.
Kit - Pine Board Wireless Transmitter
Now your antique radio can play some of the same programs it did when it was new! With your cassette tape player, phonograph or high output microphone, this one tube transmitter becomes a miniature AM broadcasting station, patterned after the 1939 Zenith model S-7000 Wireless Record Player. Assemble on a 4 inch x 6.5 inch board. All parts and instructions included.
Coil - Miniature adjustable coil, 70, oscillator
Coil is similar to Miller number 70-OSC oscillator coil. Their small physical size and the fact that they can be adjusted to the inductance required make these coils ideally suited for replacement in broadcast band receivers. The 70 Oscillator coil has a primary and a tapped secondary. These coils are for use in all common padded and unpadded oscillator circuits.
Coil - Miniature adjustable coil, 70, R.F. stage
Coil is similar to Miller number 70-RF. Coil is similar to Miller number 70-RF R.F. stage coil. Their small physical size and the fact that they can be adjusted to the inductance required make these coils ideally suited for replacement in broadcast band receivers. The R.F. coils have high impedance primaries and wire wound secondaries for use with any variable condenser having a maximum capacity between 250 and 450 mmf. These coils are for use in all common padded and unpadded oscillator circuits.
Form - Ceramic, 2-½" x ½" Diameter, 6-32 Threads
Use as a standoff, coil/choke form, or antenna coil.
